Best Screen Play and Best Music - Jerusalem Int. Film Festival!

"For me it's the best film in competition (at Jerusalem Int. FF) and one of the best Israeli films in recent years", Avner Shavit, Walla

" A witty satire on privilege and gentrification", Erez Devorah, YNET

Ben plants a tree on the street in front of his house in Neve Sha’anan, a migrant neighborhood in the south of Tel Aviv. The district is on the up, and Ben has bought and upgraded a flat here together with his partner Raz. This couple now enjoys a settled existence ready to tackle their desire to have children. One day, when a neighbourly conflict escalates over the tree he has planted, Ben's life goes into a turmoil.

Idan Haguel portrays a gay middle-class couple whose desire for self-realization begins to narrow their worldview, bringing deep-seated prejudices to light. A deftly told parable about the mechanisms of gentrification which, with a hint of satire, raises an uncomfortable question, namely: exactly how tolerant are we?
